Place looks good, unhelpful and unfriendly staff, rooms on first entering look good but are fairly ordinary. Water in shower was so hot we could not stand it and there was no way of adjusting it. We could not find heating system and slept in a cold room. Forget breakfast, some kind of cake, and juice, didnt see it on... More

The management at this hotel is rude and inconsiderate. I was charged more than i made the reservation for and the front desk was reluctant to correct THEIR error. Didn't help that the room was disgusting. Management acts like you're being a burden when you request basic things that a hotel should afford its guests with. It's true you get... More

The room smell and the 'breakfast' is a joke! (powder OJ) but mostly, overall poor customer service: I forgot two items hanging in the open closet of the room (coat and scarf) and called to ask if they could look for them and keep them for me for when I would return to town. I was told by the owner... More

On an off season weekdays, the 59$ is a bargain, but... The room was so so, smelled on javel and the beds were really small. The breakfast was a *joke* and the owner's attitude far less than charming. I had to cancel my second night just an hour after booking it and I had to insist about getting my money... More

Just came back from watching the Mazda MotoGP in Monterey, CA. My husband booked through Booking.com. We chose Padre Oaks for the location and affordability.The rate included breakfast. What we later experienced was one unfortunate experience!! We arrived a few hours before check in time of 3pm. My husband wanted to use a restroom after a long drive from Los... More

I think this motel is a bargain when you consider you are in Monterey. We found the room to be clean,quite and have everything you need when staying in a hotel. Good location to attractions in the Monterey area. This hotel is right across the street from the Del Monte Shopping Center.

Arrived in Monterey on a Friday night so expected to pay a little more for the room as it was the weekend. Found this motel along a stretch of road with 5-8 other motels. Tried them all and this was the cheapest by far. (in our opinion: Still expensive for what it was.) In our opinion: Pleasant room, clean, quiet... More

Just returned from a trip to Central California with family & friends. We needed an inexpensive hotel for an overnight stay in Monterey before our journey down the Pacific Coast Highway. We stayed at the Padre Oaks. It is small and dated roadside motel but was perfect for what we needed. It was just what we expected. It was very... More

We booked this hotel to stay for the weekend. Hotel is conveniently located near shopping mall that is literally across the street and not far at all from great scenic areas of Monterey. Staff members were polite and friendly people. After spending a long day outside exploring, it was nice to come back to our CLEAN and FRESH rooms and... More

Need to think seriously before booking this hotel. It is true, the rooms are nice and quiet but the beds are worn (and rock hard) and the pillows are even harder. Booked 2 rooms for 4 persons each. Only 2 towels were provided for each room. Liked the use of real cups but again only 2 provided for each room.... More
